LightRail 3.5 is a scalable system for your indoor grow lights where up to three indoor grow lights can move in-line.
LightRail 3.5 IntelliDrive indoor grow system helps promote even growth from end to end. And, this grow light mover allows for equal light-time for the entire indoor grow light run.
LightRail 3.5 IntelliDrive Kit comes complete with a 10rpm Motor and a two-piece 2 meter (6’6”) Rail. And it comes with installation hardware and instruction. Also, the LightRail 3.5 IntelliDrive indoor grow kit can also be purchased as the Motor only with installation hardware and instructions.
So, that’s perfect for anyone who already has a light mover rail. Or, it’s perfect for anyone who wants to purchase their light mover rail separately. LightRail 3.5 IntelliDrive grow light systems travel at 10 RPM. So, that equals approximately 4 feet (1.2 meters) per minute. And, this grow light mover has a zero to sixty-second adjustable time delay for pausing the grow lamp at the end of each run.

LightRail light movers are perfect for any indoor grow light systems or supplemental greenhouse lighting. This grow light mover also works for four season greenhouse grow lights, grow tent setups and larger commercial grow operations. LightRail IntelliDrive 3.5, the DIY light mover scalable for any space, should be considered an important part of our indoor growing kits. And, this grow light mover should be an integral part of any indoor grow light system or greenhouse. LightRail 3.5 IntelliDrive has a 0-60 second adjustable time delay for the ends of each run, and the travel length can be set anywhere along the Rail by placing the Switch Stop stoppers where you like.
Note: LightRail 3.5 runs on 120 Volt so works in the US and Canada, but is not compatible to European 220 Volt electrical. In that case, LightRail 4.0 is the light mover of choice in that it has an adaptable transformer power cord and runs on 12 VDC so works in both the US and in Europe. A proper country-specific plug end would be needed, and we have EU and UK plug ends available upon request.
Indoor plant light should always be maximized
Grow equipment, especially indoor plant light, should always be maximized. And, LightRail light movers are the most effective way to get the most out of our indoor grow setup. And, that’s for all indoor growing kits.
Stationary grow lighting only shines indoor plant light on the parts of leaves that are directly beneath it. This can cause limited growth and even damage to the plant similar to sunburn. LightRail light mover indoor growing systems, including the LightRail 3.5 IntelliDrive Kits, solve this problem of stationary indoor garden lights. Grow light movers move the indoor grow lights over the tops of plants. So now, the leaves get light at different angles. This grow light system change lights up all the plant surfaces. So, more of the leaves are actually working for the plant. With stationary indoor grow lights, light energy can also be lost because it cannot diversify itself in order to allow our plants to absorb it at the optimum levels. But with LightRail light movers, the correct intensity of light shines on each leaf for 40% of the photoperiod. This allows the plant to reach optimum Leaf Area Index, the most important factor in increasing yield.
Scalable and expandable to any size indoor grow system
LightRail 3.5 IntelliDrive, is the DIY light mover for scalability. And, indoor plant light, should always be maximized and LightRail is the most effective way to get the most out of your grow light system and indoor growing equipment. That’s for any indoor grow system or greenhouse, so let us help you plan out your space. Simply let us know your planted area dimensions and the number of lights to move. And, we’ll then email you a custom schematic. LightRail is the most effective way to get the most out of our indoor grow setup and specifically, our indoor growing systems.
Made in the USA, LightRail 3.5 IntelliDrive has important ratings
Manufactured by Gualala Robotics, LightRail has important electrical certifications (C CSA US or CE). And, these grow light movers have flammability ratings (UL 5 VB) and are RoHS compliant. The LightRail indoor grow kit has a two year manufacturer warranty. And, it runs at a safe 28-42 degrees C with a flame retardant electrical enclosure, as it should be. Conversely, imitator light movers run as hot as 107 C (170 F) and their electrical enclosures are likely made of flammable plastic. Without quality, there is no value. And if it does not say Gualala Robotics, it is not a LightRail.
We duplicate nature and the sunlight supply
It’s basically a way to get the indoor plant light to duplicate nature and to duplicate the sunlight supply. And, stationary grow lamps cannot even come close to this ability. But, put any stationary grow lamp on a LightRail light mover, and it can instantly supply us with the change we want to see in our indoor grow room setup. Whether we use a LightRail 3.5 Kit, a LightRail 4.0 Kit or a LightRail 4.20 Kit; it’s the most important grow equipment change we can make.
It’s the biggest bang for the buck in efficiency
The more we automate our indoor grow system, the better the results we can achieve. This is especially true when we take the single most important variable of our growing equipment, the grow light system, and we make it better. We can make the grow light system much better. Automation for indoor grow systems, especially for our indoor grow light systems, will make all the difference. The LightRail light mover grow light system automation gives us the biggest bang for the buck in efficiency.

Light Rail 3.5 IntelliDrive with Complete Kit (Two 3' Rails) Questions & Answers
How much weight will LightRail Carrry?
The answer to this is twofold. For LightRail 3.5 and 4.0 let’s first talk about the strength of the rail then we’ll talk about LightRail Drive Motor that moves your grow light. If only mounted by the mounting holes at the ends of the rail, the rail will begin to deflect when 35 lbs. (16kg) is in the middle of the rail. If all the rails mounting holes are used when mounting the rail first to a board, and then the board to the structure above your garden, it will easily handle 75 lbs.
Next, the LightRail 3.5 or 4.0 Drive Motor can easily move 75 lbs (34kg). However, more weight equals accelerated wear and tear mostly on the Trolley Wheels. LightRail's testing has shown that the Trolley Wheels on a LightRail 3.5 or 4.0 Drive Motor will last between 12 and 16 months moving a load of 35 pounds (16kg). Their Extreme Duty Trolley Wheels have a lifetime warranty at 60 pounds per set of four. Plus they have very low drag co-efficiency so they are the best choice for moving heavy or multiple reflectors
LightRail 5.0 will hold and move 100 lbs (45kgs) per cross arm (limit 3 cross arms) but again, needs to be mounted to a structure properly. Note: The greater the weight, the more frequently trolley wheels will need to be replaced. Trolley wheel kits are available for LightRail 3.5, 4.0 and the older 3.0, but for LightRail 5.0 needs LightRail must be contacted for any serviceable work and they make that easy and with a quick turnaround time.
What's the difference between the Light Rail 3.5 and 4.0?
They both have 0-60 second adjustable time delay for the ends and they have the same rail but the 4.0 has the added feature of a two to four feet (.6 to 1.2 meters) per minute adjustable speed control as it travels along the rail. The 3.5 and 4.0 are compatible with using all the same accessory items including drive wheels and trolley wheels.

- Great product
Product arrived when promised. Works well. Light turns due to cord. Would prefer some kind of stabilizer.
